Celtics send Rondo and Garnett to the Thunder and Jason Collings to the Clippers.
Receive Perry Jones, Bledsoe, DeAndre Jordan and Caron Butler. A first round pick from the Clippers.

Thunder send Westbrook, Thabeet and Maynor to the Clippers and Perry Jones to the Celtics. 
Receive Rondo, Garnett and a future first from the Clippers.

Clippers send Bledsoe, DeAndre Jordan, Caron Butler and future first to the Celtics.
Receive Westbrook, Thabeet, Collins and Maynor.

Reasons: 

Ok. City is a great team and the offense is off the charts in the regular season. But they aren't built to beat the Heat, and they won't as currently constructed.  They'll score a bit less but Garnett is the missing ingredient to a complete shutdown of Miami. 

Clippers:  Flying high now but ditto.  They need to gamble on  the whacked starting backcourt of Paul and Westbrook.  Insane.

Celtics:  begin the rebuild.  Suck and improve their draft prospects while adding a few good young players.

Reality.  I think the Clippers say yes, but I think Ok. City might say no.  They're in love with their team and that's very hard to mess with.  They won't beat the Heat as is imo.  They don't have the defense.

The NBA is a very stupid, corrupt, and unethical league

It's literally the only trade I could think of that KG might nix his no-trade clause for.
Due to Rondo going with and the great possibility of another title.  Perk reunion doesn't hurt either.  The Celtics get shafted in the trade and we head for the lottery for a year or 3, pray that there's a player in Perry Jones and that Bledsoe can handle PG full time..
